      Dhanu K An exceptional cinematic piece of art that is both disturbing and thought-provoking. The exploration of the conflict between societal control and individual freedom is so powerful, and Malcolm McDowell has delivered his career-best performance. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review D F not entertaining, and weird Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Barney C I understood a whopping 60% of everything that was happening, but somehow the movie still felt balanced and well directed even with my confusion. Would recommend Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/24 Full Review Gareth v A classic, and arguably Kubrik's finest work. A dystopian adventure that is a disturbing yet captivating look at a totalitarianism society. A movie that will stay with you long after seeing it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/24 Full Review João B Filme obra prima, direção impecável, trilha sonora incrível, camadas para personagens, roteiro e uma trama perfeita. Um clássico renomado que tem sua mensagem funcional até hoje.

      Pauline Kael New Yorker I can’t accept that Kubrick is merely reflecting this post-assassinations, post-Manson mood; I think he’s catering to it. I think he wants to dig it. Sep 12, 2023 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review A stone-cold classic, no getting around the fact... Sep 21, 2021 Full Review Charles Champlin Los Angeles Times I'm afraid I found A Clockwork Orange brilliant but disappointing, its moments of power offset by an overwrought stridency and its message overbalanced by the medium. Dec 21, 2020 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage An exploration of the power psychological games can have on us. [Full review in Spanish] Apr 5, 2023 Full Review Dilys Powell Sunday Times (UK) The cast is all you could hope for, and Kubrick handles his medium with a confidence almost insolent. For the rest, he has given us the most audacious of horror films. And the most inhuman. Aug 8, 2022 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …a sensational story of youth both revolting and betrayed… Rated: 5/5 Jul 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
